CLEVELAND, Ohio - Adesuwa Aideyman, a 5-foot-7 guard from Reynoldsburg High School, has signed a National Letter of Intent to attend Cleveland State University and play basketball beginning in the fall of 2012.
Aideyman joins Jasmine Flanagan (Corona, Calif.) and Nafeshia Holifield (Milwaukee, Wis.) who signed with the Vikings during the early signing period.
"We are very excited to add Adesuwa to our roster, she fills a need that we were really looking for in the late signing period in every respect," head coach Kate Peterson Abiad said. "On the court she has a great work ethic, excellent quickness and athleticism and understands what it takes to win. She was very successful during her high school career and she will bring all of those intangibles with her to Cleveland State. She also excels in the classroom and is a well-rounded and polished young lady. We feel really good about her future here at Cleveland State."
As a senior, Aideyman led her team to a 26-1 record, falling in the semi-finals of the Ohio State Tournament. The squad, which posted a perfect 14-0 record in Ohio Capital Conference play, finished the season ranked second in the state of Ohio and 65th in the country. She averaged 10 points, two steals, two assists and two rebounds per contest as a senior, and was one of the team's top defensive players.
